Product Information

product description

24mm wide, bright Leica DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens and high sensitivity CCD for stunning image quality.

With the DMC-LX3, you can take high quality pictures, because it boasts to have exceptional low light performance thanks to the new electrical circuitry and high sensitivity CCD. With the combined efforts from the new high sensitivity CCD and Venus Engine â…£,the DMC-LX3 has managed to achieve a performance of 3dB gain in S/N ratio while keeping high detail resolution at high ISO sensitivities.

The f/2.0-f/2.8 bright Leica DC VARIO-SUMMICRON Lens guarantees premium quality with minimal distortion and edge-to-edge sharpness. Even with the 24mm wide angle,the DMC-LX3 displays less distortion than competitor models thanks to Leica DC lens.

The joystick gives the DMC-LX3 its intuitive and highly precise, full manual operation. Simply move the joystick vertically or horizontally to adjust the exposure and to adjust the focus during Manual focus. The joystick can be easily operated by the thumb while holding the camera to prevent any interruption to your shooting rhythm. This lets you smoothly optimize the settings at the exact moment you finish framing the shot, whether you are capturing the proud stance of a single magnificent flower, the gentle flow of a stream, or a bird taking flight.

The DMC-LX3 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 × 720 pixels at 30 fps). The DMC-LX3 also supports the HD Output function (1080i output). Simply connect the camera to an HDTV with an optional HD component cable DMW-HDC2, and you can easily view HD Photos on any HDTV. HD Output makes it possible to enjoy both HD motion images and slideshows of your LUMIX still images, complete with music.

The DMC-LX3 features a new super high resolution (460k) 3:2 Intelligent LCD screen for easy framing in this aspect. Intelligent LCD function allows you to view images or compose your shots from many angles. Under bright sunlight, the Auto Power LCD function increases the backlight brightness in nine steps according to the ambient light intensity. In dimly lit locations, it adjusts the frame rate of live images in two steps according to the ambient darkness.
